Twenty years ago Ernest and Shirley Svenson made a sizeable donation to the fine arts department in order to establish a yearly retrospective of student drawing in the UNO Fine Arts department. They understood the fundamental importance of drawing as a gateway to understanding the spatial world and it's history as one of the most important forms of communication. The exhibition will contain many different forms of drawing that explore traditional skills as well as contemporary ideas about drawing materials and subject matter. The exhibition is judged and prizes are awarded to the top three works in the exhibition. This years exhibition will have a preview day at the UNO library during the UNO research day.
